Matt Bomer

Eichner asked Matt Bomer on coming out "before that was the acceptable thing to do." The actor said, "I had incredible role models... Ellen DeGeneres and Neil Patrick Harris... and other people who come before me, and it was a risky thing to do at the time Magic Mike was about to come out that was largely built on sex appeal and I was a romantic lead on television. To me, I had to weigh out my personal life which was the fact that I was soon-to-be a husband, we had three children and I wanted to be able to look them in the eye with love and sincerity and truth and honesty was ultimately more important to me than what was going to cost me my career." 

Bebe Rexha

"Hi, it's Bebe Rexha. I miss all of your beautiful faces and I can't wait to see you guys soon. This is a really tough time for everyone," the singer said. "Including many of my dear friends in the LGBTQ community and we all know it's really important to support our loved ones, but it's becoming harder because of the COVID-19 crisis. A lot of the smaller LGBTQ centers and organizations may have to shut down their doors because of what's happening and we cannot let that happen. That's why I'm excited to work with GLAAD with Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone."
